<p>Our discussion on the second edition of <a href="https://www.takecontrolbooks.com/pdfpen/"><strong>Take Control of PDFpen</strong></a> with author <strong>Michael E. Cohen </strong>starts with a little history of the file format, explains why this book is free, then turns to the newest features of the PDF-editing utility. Michael explains why PDFs can get so large and how PDFpen can cut down the size, discusses DocuSign support, the new call-out feature and more. Find out what’s inside a PDF and why that matters, and why you may already have access to PDFpen.</p>

<p>The second part of our discussion with <strong>Bart Busschots</strong> covers the privacy and security issues surrounding Zoom, and the strengths and weaknesses of the platform. The question of whether the End User License Agreement provided adequate notice on these, and how Apple’s model that is an example that should be emulated is covered, along with the concept of risk vs. value when it comes to privacy.</p>

<p>We continue our discussion with <strong>Jeff Carlson</strong>, the author of <strong><a href="https://www.takecontrolbooks.com/apple-watch/">Take Control of Apple Watch</a> </strong>from <strong>Take Control Books, </strong>digging into the question of Apple Watch apps and the Watch App Store, as well as health-related apps and features.

<p><strong>Michael E. Cohen</strong> digs deeper into some of the concepts in his new Take Control book, <strong><a href="https://www.takecontrolbooks.com/mysteries/">Apple Interface Mysteries</a> </strong>in the second half of our conversation. Again, he draws on past experience to explain how some of the interface elements we all know came about, and why they aren’t always as intuitive as we would like. Be sure to watch past the end credits for some bonus material that might just give you a new perspective on interfaces and how to learn them.</p>

<p>The latest offering from <strong>Take Control Books</strong> is a bit unusual for them. <strong>Michael E. Cohen</strong> explains why he has wanted to write <strong><a href="https://www.takecontrolbooks.com/mysteries/">Apple Interface Mysteries</a> </strong>for a long time, and why now was the right time.

Part history, part technical explanation, this is a fun discussion and book for any Apple enthusiast.</p>

Mike's love-affair for all things Apple began in his Junior High's Library playing Lemonade Stand on a pair of brand new Apple ][+ computers. His penchant for Apple gear continued to be nurtured by the public school system when, in High School, he was hired as a lab supervisor to help run the Apple ][e lab for his fellow students and their Print Shop needs. Then, further still, in college he often opted to help a friend with her Computer Graphics coursework instead of focusing on his own studies, but only because it helped get him closer to the Mac-lab.</p>

<p><strong>Jeff Carlson</strong> is back to discuss photo editing from a different perspective. In his <strong><a href="http://www.amazon.com/dp/B086LD8VZL/?tag=macvoices-20">The Photographer's Guide to Luminar 4</a></strong>, we get a look at a new way to enhance our photos. While Luminar has all the usual capabilities, Jeff explains how it uses slider controls to simplify what, in other programs, might take multiple difficult and time-consuming steps. In Luminar 4, AI isn’t just a buzzword, but is integrated to improve your experience and results. In Part 1, Jeff uses the portrait and sky improvements as examples of what you can accomplish.</p>
